Written Ministerial Statements — Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport: Media Matters (24 Mar 2020)

Oliver Dowden: On 22 January 2020, DCMS informed the House that my predecessor had issued a Public Interest Intervention Notice (PIIN) in respect of the acquisition by Daily Mail and General Trust (DMGT) of JPI Media Publications Ltd, and thus the i newspaper. The PIIN triggered the requirement for the Competition and Markets Authority (CMA) to report to me on jurisdictional and competition matters, and...

Written Answers — Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport: Charities: Coronavirus (19 Mar 2020)

Written Answers — Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport: Third Sector: Coronavirus (19 Mar 2020)

Oliver Dowden: Organisations across civil society are already working tirelessly to support their communities in response to covid-19. I have had several conversations with civil society organisations about responding to covid-19 and its potential impact on charities and social enterprises. Last week the Minister for Civil Society, Baroness Barran, held a roundtable with over 45 charities to listen to their...

Written Answers — Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport: Malvern Hills Trust (17 Mar 2020)

Oliver Dowden: The Department has no plans to make the Malvern Hills Trust subject to the Freedom of Information Act 2000. The Malvern Hills Trust recently consulted publicly on proposals to amend its governance provisions and will set out its next steps in due course. The Department is in discussion with the Charity Commission and the charity on the most appropriate means of taking the changes forward and...

Written Answers — Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport: Voluntary Work: Young People (17 Mar 2020)

For the 2016 Autumn programme for every £1 spend, £2.21 is provided back in terms of the economic benefits. The economic benefits relate to the...

Telecommunications Infrastructure (Leasehold Property) Bill: Code rights in respect of land connected to leased premises (10 Mar 2020)

Oliver Dowden: We have made at least three new commitments today. First, we will bring back the telecoms security Bill by the summer, which will enable the House—[Interruption.] The hon. Lady repeatedly challenged me over when the Bill would be brought back. We have said when we will bring it back for the House to debate. In the announcement from the National Security Council —from the Government—we...

Telecommunications Infrastructure (Leasehold Property) Bill: Code rights in respect of land connected to leased premises (10 Mar 2020)

Oliver Dowden: The Government—I think we all share this objective—would like to get to the point where we do not need any high-risk vendors at all, and we are setting out that process. That said, I want to be candid with hon. Members: I am not today repeating the words of the Under-Secretary of State for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport, my hon. Friend the hon. Member for Boston and Skegness (Matt...

Telecommunications Infrastructure (Leasehold Property) Bill: Code rights in respect of land connected to leased premises (10 Mar 2020)

Oliver Dowden: I will take one last intervention, but then I really must stop.

Telecommunications Infrastructure (Leasehold Property) Bill: Code rights in respect of land connected to leased premises (10 Mar 2020)

Oliver Dowden: The convention is that representatives of the NCSC appear only before the ISC, but when I spoke to the NCSC’s director this morning, I suggested—and he agreed—that he should appear before any appropriate Committee, such as, perhaps, the Defence or the Foreign Affairs Committee. We will seek maximum engagement before that, so that the Committee can have all the relevant information. I...

Telecommunications Infrastructure (Leasehold Property) Bill: Code rights in respect of land connected to leased premises (10 Mar 2020)

Oliver Dowden: If my right hon. Friend will allow me to set out those steps, I assure him that I will take as many interventions as he wishes me to. We looked at this issue over many months and in great technical detail through our telecoms supply chain review. This review was informed by technical and security analysis undertaken by GCHQ’s National Cyber Security Centre. It was the most detailed study of...

Telecommunications Infrastructure (Leasehold Property) Bill: Code rights in respect of land connected to leased premises (10 Mar 2020)

Oliver Dowden: I assure hon. Gentlemen that I will give way if they allow me to proceed a little more, because I want to set out the context, which may address some of the points that they intend to raise. We will of course keep the 35% cap under review and, over time, our intention is to reduce our reliance on high-risk vendors as the process of market diversification takes place. We want to get to a...

Telecommunications Infrastructure (Leasehold Property) Bill: Code rights in respect of land connected to leased premises (10 Mar 2020)

Oliver Dowden: I will make a final point and then I will give way to Members. Hon. Members will have the opportunity to discuss controls on high-risk vendors when the Government bring forward legislation. I confirm that we will do that before the summer and that there will be an opportunity for colleagues to engage fully on how and when the commitments will be implemented. That will include the National...

Telecommunications Infrastructure (Leasehold Property) Bill: Code rights in respect of land connected to leased premises (10 Mar 2020)

Oliver Dowden: It would be fair to give way to my right hon. Friend the Member for Chingford and Woodford Green first.

Telecommunications Infrastructure (Leasehold Property) Bill: Code rights in respect of land connected to leased premises (10 Mar 2020)

Oliver Dowden: I think we are all in agreement—certainly on the Government side of the House, and I believe that many Opposition Members also agree—that in an ideal world, there will be no need for any high-risk vendors at all. However, what we have to do, as a first step to getting to that point and within this Parliament, is ensure that we have developed the supply chain capacity. The point has been...

Telecommunications Infrastructure (Leasehold Property) Bill: Code rights in respect of land connected to leased premises (10 Mar 2020)

Oliver Dowden: I understand the point that my right hon. Friend is making, but I hope that he would accept that at the moment, aside from Huawei, there is Ericsson and Nokia, which we are currently reliant on, and we need to enhance that capacity. That is why the Government are committing today to ensuring that within this Parliament, we work with our Five Eyes and other partners to ensure that we develop...

Telecommunications Infrastructure (Leasehold Property) Bill: Code rights in respect of land connected to leased premises (10 Mar 2020)

Oliver Dowden: My right hon. Friend raised two points. First, he referenced the role of the National Security Council. As he will be aware, that was created when he served as Defence Secretary under the former Prime Minister, David Cameron. It is a committee of the Cabinet. That is how decisions are made on behalf of the Government. The Cabinet delegates decisions to the National Security Council. That is...

Telecommunications Infrastructure (Leasehold Property) Bill: Code rights in respect of land connected to leased premises (10 Mar 2020)

Oliver Dowden: The National Security Council looked at that. The National Cyber Security Centre advised on it, working with GCHQ. We took that analysis of the risk. That was then assessed by Ministers through the National Security Council, who weighed up that risk. The Government took the decision that we should have a cap of 35% for high-risk vendors—principally, Huawei—and we would then seek to...

Telecommunications Infrastructure (Leasehold Property) Bill: Code rights in respect of land connected to leased premises (10 Mar 2020)

Oliver Dowden: I thank my right hon. Friend for his intervention. There is a huge sense of urgency in this. That is why we are committed to working with our Five Eyes partners to make sure that, for the first time, we set out a timetable to say that within this Parliament, we will get the capacity, so that we can then ensure that we will start to move away from our reliance on high-risk vendors. It is...

Telecommunications Infrastructure (Leasehold Property) Bill: Code rights in respect of land connected to leased premises (10 Mar 2020)

Oliver Dowden: We are clear in our commitment to diversification. That is the path by which we get to that point and those are the steps we are setting out today.
